  1. Time it takes the alternator to fully charge a nearly dead battery

    I have the ESS (ASS) turned off with a Tazer, so that may be why I haven't had a failure or anything lighting up. But yes, the whole dual battery set up from factory seems to not function as they thought it would.
  2. Time it takes the alternator to fully charge a nearly dead battery

    Yes, and probably will. Just trying to milk everything I can out of these batteries. I understand their thinking on lowest bidder on parts, but the warranty headaches they've had with these low grade batteries has to have ended up costing them more than they made on the deal. Probably going...
  3. Time it takes the alternator to fully charge a nearly dead battery

    I'm past the 3 year mark, been waiting for a battery failure. Been constantly at 14.3V when driving so figure it's just a matter of time. Might go ahead and change them before it gets cold so I don't have to do it when it's 0 outside. That's the worst time to have to change batteries.
  4. Jeep Gladiator Gets Record $20K Discount Off MSRP Amid Sales Slump

    $52,000 for a new Sport S is way overpriced to start. It's easy to do deep discounts when it's overpriced.
  5. Can I buy an extension for this fog light connector?

  6. Tow capacity of 2023 Gladiator Rubicon w/ tow package?

    Neither is saying "7000 pounds". Which is almost everyones standard reply. When in truth, it's nowhere near 7000 pounds.
  7. Tow capacity of 2023 Gladiator Rubicon w/ tow package?

    The number everyone wants to overlook and yet is THE number defining what you can tow is, Rubicon Automatic GCWR = 12,540 lbs. That is the weight of the fully load JT WITH passengers + total weight of loaded trailer. Keep in mind that if tongue weight of trailer is over 700 pounds then it's a...
  8. Tow capacity of 2023 Gladiator Rubicon w/ tow package?

    The problem with that is, they see the numbers everyone posts up out of the manual without doing the math, and their brand new JT is all of a sudden worth 1000 pounds less. Or worse, someone that doesn't know the first thing about towing hooks up a 7000 pound trailer to an already overloaded...
  9. "perfect" wheel specs?

    First question you need to ask yourself, are you looking at putting a true lift on in the future. If the answer is yes, you want to keep your back spacing at 4.5" or less. Or you will be buying new wheels or wheel spacers for your lift. A majority of lifts call for 4.5" or less back spacing...
  10. Tow capacity of 2023 Gladiator Rubicon w/ tow package?

    Open driver door, look at info on sticker on driver door. No other information from anywhere else holds true for YOUR JT but what is on the door. No one wants to do the math from the section in the book, they want to copy the max number and call it Gospel and that is wrong.
  11. A sense of humor helps sometimes...

    You're damned lucky the bag of hardware is still in there.
  12. Rocking side to side when on interstate

    If you're going to be changing the load on your JT often, then spend the extra money and get shocks with an adjustment. If you don't then you're going to be set up for just one condition, and either too soft loaded or too firm empty.
  13. Fender liner recommendations please

    Aluminum still oxidizes, so you'll want something on them. The suggestion of scuffing them and a rattle can bed liner is probably the least expensive route. Now, make SURE what you get is for a DIESEL, there are differences and the gasser inner fenders will NOT fit.
  14. Extended lca

    Everything from back of front doors forward is the same.
  15. Jeep isn't the only company to mismatch parts....

    More than likely the supplier put the wrong bar code sticker on one of the seats. With the way the system is set up, no one checks the product any more, just the bar code. If it matches it goes in.
  16. Drill the Diff covers

    Yeah, don't drill the stock, stamped steel, thin covers. Buy aftermarket heavy duty covers. Drilling the stock cover and tapping it is asking for issues. Drilling and welding a threaded bung in would be fine.
  17. Wheels Towing Question

    Most wheel manufacturers list the load limit of their wheels on their website. So get make and model of wheel you're looking at and go to their website and start researching.
  18. Turned oem LED Fog lights into DRL

    DRL is Daytime Running Lights. AlfaOBD is the software/hardware he is using to change the settings in the JT computer. OBD is the location hardware plugs in to, as in OBDII, or On Board Diagnostics port.
